Re: Alternative to ableton,

How dare you try and calm me down and talk sense? LOL seriously I didn't know that, for the record I'm an old dad who's trying to set this up for the kids. I even have a launchpad to set up at the same time. I've tried following the instrictions that came with it, but got lost in the set up calibra...

Re: Reaper/Live users have an MPE workaround!

Nice tip. Out of curriosity, how long have you been using Reaper? I decided to give it a tenth chance about a year ago and I finally clicked with it. It took a while to set it up how I like it, but after setting it up I have been using it almost as much as Live. There's a lot more support on how to...

Live's database is just plain bad.

Why did they do this after Live 8. The database folder adds to OS drive space. It is slow after you reset it. I had to reset since it was showing files no longer on my system and probably imported that from my Live 9. When I buy samples they go to my downloads folder. They get unzipped and auditione...

Re: Live 10 upgrade path

Yeah, for loyal Ableton supporters, $299 upgrade is ridiculous. How unfortunate, as I was all in for Ableton. It will now remain as a live 9 performance tool, and music will be made with Reason. Bummer. It is $250 on sale, that's when people upgrade. If you are going to pick the worst case for the ...

Re: Live 10 upgrade path

I'd have to agree that the Suite to Suite upgrade is a terrible value. It's my last version of Suite. No real upgrades in it to justify the price. 3rd party stuff is better if you have Kontakt, Synthmaster 1, Serum. I know you get Max 8 but I find Live gets really deep when you get into it more and ...

Stick with 10.0.2?

See more than one thread on performance issues with the latest version.

Anyone doing fine with 10.0.3? I use a desktop.

Re: Ableton Orchestral Pack/Modulation question

Did you go through all of the patches? Is there a crescendo? This library is very old and probably the biggest waste of 60gb.

Re: 10.3 is unusable LAGS , UNUSABLE

I always keep the previous version archived. I guess I'll create a restore point in Windows installing this one or maybe wait. I just upgraded to 10 so no projects are in danger.

Re: New Live 9.7.7b1 Beta available, WOW

Fixed a bug where Reason could freeze for a couple of seconds under macOS High Sierra 10.13.4 when using Hyper Threading. Please note that when using Hyper Threading on High Sierra 10.13.4 you might still experience minor graphic glitches.

Re: Ableton 10.0.2 performance loss.

The library is what seems to slow everything down for me. I click on a section and it takes a few seconds to a few minutes for anything to actually appear, then if I click on another section I get the same, it only seems to retain one section at a time. The places/packs section is fine and opens in...

Re: Ableton Olympus Elements vs Soundiron Olympus Elements

This depends on the Kontakt version. Most developers compress Kontakt libraries to save disk space meanwhile Live versions don't. Live version is also proprietary. Kontakt version hand down.

Re: Anyone upgrade from 9 Suite to 10 Standard?

So far you are the only one I know that went this route. I'm another one :) ... Didn't have any reason to go with 10 Suite. If you decide to go this way, also take this detail into account, heh: https://forum.ableton.com/viewtopic.php?f=40&t=229548 This was my major concern. In my perfect world I w...
